A simple title, because that’s what it is. Friday. Today was Raffaello’s last day at daycare until September. Felicity and I spent the morning checking out the public library and I was surprised at how nice it was. We will be going back in the future. There was a children’s area, with games, coloring and books of course. We spent easily an hour there.
Before going home we stopped for cappuccino and juice. It’s become our morning routine. I’ve tried cappuccino from many “bars” around town and so far, I prefer the bar closest to our house. They make a thick, foamy, hot cappuccino. Too bad the bar seems to be a “men’s bar”, there only seem to be men that go there, especially old men. This seems the case for almost all the bars in town? Where are women supposed to go? I don’t care though and continue to go. Southern Italy can be very stuck in the 1950’s.
Once we got home we left again to go pick out the favors for Raffaello’s baptism. We tried to hurry it but it was late and Felicity was hungry. We finally made the order and went to my in-laws for lunch around 1:45. We hung out there for awhile and eventually decided to pick up Raffi early from daycare and go to the pool.
We had such a great time at the pool. It was the first time I have taken both alone and it went fine. Felicity knows her limits in that pool, which makes me a little nervous for a different pool but I think she’ll learn quickly. There’s one end of the pool that is shallow and the deep end is over a barrier. She doesn’t go over and often finds friends in the shallow end to play with. I had to watch Raffaello like a hawk there. He has no fear and tries to leap into the too deep water. We brought buckets and shovels and both kids were entertained until the pool closed.
Raffi really needs a different color life vest!
